Portmeirion and Gardens
The climate at Portmeirion is very mild , winter frosts are rare and this has allowed plantings of tender exotic genera and species in common with many Cornish gardens.
Portmerrion an Italianate Village created by Clough Williams-Ellis overlooking the sea in Wales. Full of interest and colour.
The first plantings at Portmeirion Gardens, were in early Victorian times. Henry Seymour Westmacott in the late 1850's was responsible for most of these.
There are woodland gardens, sub-tropical plants, giant yuccas, palms, tree ferns as well as formal borders and small lakes.
Rhododendrons and Azaleas are one of the main attractions with the peak in May. A land train will take you around the woodland gardens if you prefer not to walk.
If you have time the nearby historic home of Clough Williams-Ellis at Plas Brondanw has beautiful gardens in Italianate style and we highly recommend you visit them.
